and not voted in the presidential campaign ?ustome caller: i registered to vote when i was 21. i have a child now and feel like i have more of a responsibility for the future. when i hear about president obama and education, i just don't understand what other people are hearing he is going to say he is going to do. the man will not even give us his tax information. that is a simple thing to do. i don't feel comfortable with a person going into office who will not show me his taxes. host: that was henry in north carolina. first time voters for this segment of the "washington journal." why are you a first-time voter? caller: because i wanted to help support obama. i got my wife to register and vote. we both are voting this year. host: why have you not voted in the past? liker: i don't think -- the last caller, i thought politics was just politics. this time around, everybody -- it just feels like they did not give obama enough time. the only had four years to fisx a mess that took eight years. host: what did you think of the debate last night? caller: i think they both looked equal, you know? a
gone by the wayside and why it is not look that by only four presidential candidates but also senatorial candidates. host: -- guest: president obama has not been as in days with putting forward judges. by the way, the supreme court today may be years 2% of cases in this country. the docket is shrinking. the circuit courts become increasingly important. you see the impact of obama not having pushed through as many as president bush did. i think the courts are some important, as i mentioned. i think it should be discussed in this campaign. i hope in the next debate. presidents are not just individuals. they come with a set of advisers. romney's key judicial advisor, some and you may remember, who in 1987 was rejected by the senate for being way out of the mainstream in this country said only the equal protection clause applied to women. he believes corporations are people. some of his best friends are corporations. he played a very destruction -- disruptive role in the fairness of equality and opportunity. those are not left-right issues. i then we need to take a hard look at th
